Fall Trends: Necessities for 2012


As a college student on a budget, I am always looking for deals and signs that read CLEARANCE, 75% off and more! This season the trends for fall have changed and the styles range from dark oxblood colors to bright but seasonal mustard yellow and more.

As a Chatham College woman, I am excited to try new trends from spikes, to chunky jewelry, to statement necklaces, boots, printed scarves, bright colored skinny jeans, beanies, and more.

My style lately has transitioned in ways I would never imagine; on the weekends you can catch me in the local Pittsburgh Goodwill looking for beanies, oversized men’s shirts and oversized cardigans.


Here are some examples of must-haves for fall 2012:




Here is an outfit for a casual day in class…even your 8am math class! It’s simple yet still fashionable.

All of the pictures just give you a taste of what you can do during the fall season.  All of these styles can be recreated from pieces found in your local mall, Goodwill or thrift stores. I am an avid shopper in local Pittsburgh consignment shops and Goodwill stores and highly recommend them; after all, we’re all girls on a college budget!
